Hiding in Plain Sight

Minoritarian Approaches to Espionage, Forensic Architecture, and In_Visible Co-Producers

Since the nineteenth century, the courtroom, as dominant legal dispositive as well as imaginary model, manages and curates in_visibility through its architecture, rules, and procedures. [1] Central to this is the publicity maxim accompanied by the judge’s ‘confidentiality of deliberations’ conducted in a separate room. [2] Prior to the deliberations, the legal evidence procedure translates indices at the threshold of in_visibility and creates a hierarchy between different types of (legitimate) knowledge and data carriers.
